    Submarine cable projects

  • We recently issued a Notice to Mariners ahead of planned survey works in Orkney.

    Over the next few months, our sub-contractors Fugro will be carrying out geophysical and geotechnical surveying of the proposed Hoy North and South, and Carradale to Arran and Mull to Coll submarine electricity cable routes. 
    The surveys will utilise three different vessels to complete operations, the Fugro Frontier - offshore vessel and the MV Valkyrie and Fugro Seeker, nearshore vessels. Subject to favourable weather conditions, the survey programme is scheduled to take place during the following times:

    Schedule of Operations Hoy North and South
    • 19th Dec to 31st Dec 2020 - Nearshore survey - Fugro Seeker
    • 19th Feb to 22nd Feb 2021 - Offshore survey - Fugro Frontier
